Biodiesel

I herd this on Motor Trend radio last week and wonder if this really works. If that stuff really works, I would like to see all commercial diesels use it.

Which? Biodiesel or straight vegetable oil?

Biodiesel is a replacement for diesel, vegetable oil must be heated or thinned, and you must still use some form of diesel or petroleum.

Greasecar makes kits to heat vegetable oil. Otherwise you can make biodiesel from vegetable oil through chemical conversion, like I do, which requires no modification to the diesel vehicle.

One day I'm going to buy myself a big freakin diesel f 350 quad cab 4x4 and convert it to a 'greasel' so I don't have to feel guilty for driving that lifted f-dude monster around town.

those are nice man i actually broke my nose in one of those they are very fast very very very nice comfortable too. my uncle has a F350 Power Stroke turbo diesel in a crew cab with 4x4 dullies . i think he says he gets 9 in MPG
i had a K2500 chevy HD quad cab for a week back about a year ago . with the 8.1 lt v8 my only complain is that it takes about 75.00 to get a tank filled when gas was 1.50 some thing and a tank lasts about 3-4 days . you can see the gas gauge going down when you press the accelerator.

my nose broke(bleed) my hitting steering wheel as driving the f350 off the loading lane at the home depot

Did you see that episode of "Dirty Jobs" (think that's the name)? He worked with some guy on the west coast making biodiesel. This fellow was into volume productions.
